Geoffrey Agrons

"My work typically explores the uneasy coexistence between human populations and the natural world. I am intrigued by transition and impermanence, and favor material that leaves an inchoate emotional residue—the haunting suspicion that we may have forgotten something important in our inattention to the sensual realm. I have come to think of these memento mori as melancholigraphs. "

As a former radiologist, Geoffrey Agrons began his career interpreting "photographs" of the human interior. In time, he recognized that an unspoken aesthetic appreciation of diagnostic images was deeply entwined with the rigor of anatomic analysis, logic, and problem-solving. He grew interested in a different relationship with photography, one that separated an immediate emotional response from vigilant interpretation. In 2005, he acquired his first camera and began to explore the world beyond the darkened radiology reading room.

Agrons hybridizes medium format and 35mm digital photography with traditional printing techniques. Platinum prints, also known as platinotypes or platinum-palladium prints, are made by placing the negative in direct contact with paper that is hand coated with a mixture of ferric oxalate and platinum and palladium salt solutions. After exposure to ultraviolet light in a printing frame, the print is developed. First used in the 19th century, this process has recently been paired with modern digital imaging by creating a negative with an inkjet printer using transparent media. Whether the image originates in a film or digital camera, the wide tonal range of the platinum print results in a delicate and ethereal quality.

Geoffrey Agrons lives in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania. His work has been represented in many juried exhibitions and he has won numerous awards.
